Arts du Cirque
Bill Calhoun

Arts du Cirque
Arts du Cirque takes the listener on an exotic musical journey through a day at the circus. You hear the lion tamers, the trapeze artist--you even hear the clowns. It is a tapestry of sounds and marvelously orchestrated colors, not a tongue-in-cheek presentation. This new work for band will fit nicely as a contrasting piece on a concert, contest, or festival program.

The Art of Expressive PlayingThe Art of Expressive Playing
A Study in Individual, Small Ensemble, and Large Group Performance
By Jerry Nowak and Henry Nowak

While there are no absolute rules concerning expressive playing and phrasing, this innovative series clearly lays out basic concepts that help players become good musicians.

This one of a kind text, written for teachers, woodwind, brass, and percussion players, will help stimulate and cultivate more musical playing by individual musicians and by ensembles as a whole.

Legacy of Honor

Legacy of Honor
This piece drives from the start with bold trumpet flourishes and interjections from the rest of the band. After the exciting first section, a lyrical second theme departs to something beautiful and lush in harmonic structure. The development section is based on the opening theme, eventually leading the piece back, followed by a dynamic brass flourish in the coda. A solid choice by a known composer for contests and festivals.
